Choosing the sender of your invitation

Learn how to invite respondents on behalf of someone else

Do you want to approach your respondents on behalf of your colleague? That's possible!

Note: This option can only be used for manually inviting surveys. When sending out surveys automatically through Starred Connect, this can be decided upon creating the workflow that will automatically trigger the survey when a candidate is rejected/hired in your ATS.

To choose a different sender, you can click on the dropdown menu in the invitation composer and select the person that should be the sender of the invitation. The invitations will contain this person's name, function, and photo.


In order to send invitations on behalf of someone else, this particular sender should have a Starred account. To learn how to add users to your company account, check out our dedicated article.

If you wish to send out invitations from a generic address that does not have an inbox and therefore can't be a user in Starred, you can use our alias sender address feature. Check out our dedicated article to learn how to create one and then come back to this step to choose the alias address as the sender of your survey!


  • The notifications of received responses will be sent to the person from whom the invite is (also when you send it on behalf of someone else). You can disable the notifications by clicking here!
  • Only users with access to 'Can edit company details' on the Starred platform are authorized to send invitations on behalf of someone else.
